How to use space for option list_connector_string

Reported by: Owned by: anonymous CuriousCurmudgeon normal BatchModifyPlugin normal joerg.thoennes@… 0.11

Description

Our keywords are seperated by space: "A B C"

Therefore, my preferred configuration for this would be:

[batchmod]
fields_as_list = keywords,customers
list_separator_regex = \s+
list_connector_string = ' '

But the space is stripped off. Tried also:

list_connector_string = ' '
list_connector_string = " "
list_connector_string = \
list_connector_string =

But all characters used as given. At least, the last variant should work but
in this case the keywords are concatenated by the empty string which breaks anything.

Suggestions

Since I cannot change it now, please replace the description by this one:

Suggestions

• Provide space as default since the comma can be specified explicitely.
• Replace empty list_connector_string by exactly one space (preferred).
• Provide a way to escape characters (perfect, but needs more work).

• Changed the default connector from a comma to a space. This change will need highlighted so users are not surprised when upgrading.
